Marilyne was born on January 18, 1935 in Brockville, Ontario. She married William Brimson on December 26, 1960. They raised 4 children together – 3 sons and 1 daughter. She worked at MTS for 37 years where she had many friends and fond memories of working the switchboard and adapting as technology changed. She loved to talk – on the phone and in person. She was friendly and out going and kept up to date on politics and world events and enthusiastically shared her insights. She had a good sense of humour and was a gifted story teller. She loved watching figure skating on t.v.! She was keen to take on many tasks and renovation projects, she was the original do-it-yourselfer ! She enjoyed painting, wall-papering, sewing, reading, crossword puzzles, camping and maintaining a well manicured yard. She didn’t love to cook but some of her dishes such as chili, potato salad, tuna fish salad, lemon tarts, scones and shortbread cookies will be remembered fondly and greatly missed. She was practical, sensible, and thrifty. Most of all she a dedicated, loyal wife, mother and friend who will be greatly missed.
